No they are not.
Scientific theories are based on facts…one repeated observations and experiments and confirmed results and data. They don’t become theories until there is strong evidence to support them. They keep developing as new strong evidence is found.
Once can believe in the facts without the spin theories. Read moth studies in London.
Most of your examples of the church funding science are several centuries old. Do you know if the church still gives a lot of funds to schools of science and specific scientists today? To study things like The Big Bang and Evolution and astronomy and theoretical physics?
I guess I could have bored everyone by including more evidence of the Church supporting scientific research.

Monseigneur Georges Henri Joseph Édouard Lemaître, (French: ʒɔʁʒə ləmɛtʁ] ( listen); 17 July 1894 – 20 June 1966) was a Belgian Roman Catholic priest, astronomer and professor of physics at the Université catholique de Louvain. He was the first known academic to propose the theory of the expansion of the Universe, widely misattributed to Edwin Hubble. He was also the first to derive what is now known as Hubble’s law and made the first estimation of what is now called the Hubble constant, which he published in 1927, two years before Hubble’s article. Lemaître also proposed what became known as the Big Bang theory of the origin of the Universe, which he called his 'hypothesis of the primeval atom or the “Cosmic Egg”.
